Dirty Projectors

Friday, July 20, Bluebird Theater, 888-929-7849.

David Longstreth was living in western Colorado when he befriended the Love Letter Band's Chris Adolf. The future Bad Weather California frontman put out Longstreth's debut album, The Graceful Fallen Mango, on his This Heart Plays Records imprint. Since then, Longstreth has released music under the name Dirty Projectors, with numerous collaborators. In 2007, the Projectors reworked and transformed a handful of early Black Flag songs for Rise Above, and 2009's Bitte Orca, inspired by the film Wings of Desire, found them fully embracing non-Western rhythms and incorporating them into an experimental-pop format. The group's latest, Swing Lo Magellan, was made with yet another lineup from the rotating cast. Placing vocals more deftly in the cradle of multiple, complementary rhythms, Dirty Projectors continues to expand pop's sonic possibilities.
